Tom Ballard

23 Sep 2023

For the first time since 1999, the Australian people will soon be asked to vote on changing our constitution. 

The last time we said “yes” was more than 45 years ago. 

Join Year 11 Legal Studies graduate and university law dropout Tom Ballard as he deploys jokes and funny pictures to blast through the history of Australian referenda and to ask the big questions: What the hell is wrong with us? Why are we so afraid of change? Why does our constitution suck so hard? Should we just start this whole thing again, please?

Don’t miss out on this special comedy event – this show will sell out.  

As seen on Tonightly with Tom Ballard.

First Nations people are advised this show may contain the names and images of people who have died.
